Go to Hell, Stephen Harper!
...and take your pinstriped-clad factoadies with you.
The 90th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge is a moment for all Canadians to reflect, give respect, and stand shoulder to shoulder with their proud fellow citizens in honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their land, and those who returned home never to be the same...Not just those partisan hacks whose closest brush with combat was playing with their G.I Joes on Mom's kitchen floor.
Too long have we as a nation laboured under the media-fed delusion that American-style 'fast food' politicking has a place in the Canadian scheme of governance. It does not.
I look forward to the day when this dull confederacy of fanciful goofs and Oil Patch cronies lay prostrate and babbling in the self-inflicted ruins of their own morally impoverished social experiment.

Those among my treasured readers who care may note that I have now enabled comments.
The usual conditions, of course, are appended...word verification, mod approval, blah and blah.
I may or may not reply. I'm not unfriendly, but I have a family to provide for and blogging, while not picking my pocket, does not refill the exchequer.
If you like me, my heartfelt thanks in advance.
If you yell at me, I'm not listening.
'You can cuss,
you can swear,
smoke rings, see them vanish
into thin air'

~Awarded for conspicuous exertions in douchebaggery~
The creative among us know that the Internet (to use an ungainly metaphor) is like a freshly burst giant pinata, spewing its copious contents big willy-nilly style while the children below it merrily glom up all the dirt covered treasures that their little hands can carry.
Unfortunately for the human race, some of these children are less scrupulous than others about how some such treasures come into their possession, whether through greed, missed backgrounders on manners, or another unnamed nefarious cause.
Thus, when one finds out about the thieving ways of others, one is obliged to point it out, if for no other reason than the due diligence of maintaining an unbroken public record of the offence.
And so today, I give you Perez Hilton, internet celebrity tattletale - and the first entry into darkblack's 'Ripofficer Hall of Shame'.
Apparently, pending lawsuits have done little to readjust his thinking in these matters.
A word of advice to those who might follow his wayward path...The simple expedient of asking permission, and subsequently linking back to the originator's works where available does tend to minimise headaches in these matters.
A laurel, and hearty handshake to the mighty TRex of Firedoglake for pointing out this offender's shameful act to me.
